Bipolarbear

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: bye pol lar bayer

Sentence: Janus was the Office Manager and many had thought she had been way too long in the same job. As they say, she was on the shelf, way past her sell-by date. The biggest problem for her staff was how to approach her, because of her fearsome mood swings. A person could go into her office one minute and be treated in a friendly and respectful manner. A few minutes later and Janus became the bipolarbear and attacked the person. It made life hard for the staff. That was why they took up a collection and hired a big game hunter to solve their problem.

Etymology: Bi-Polar (of or relating to manic depressive illness, one of the characteristics being extreme mood swings) & Polar Bear (Ursus maritimus)white bear of arctic regions)

Psychojefe

Created by: arrrteest

Pronunciation: si-ko-heff-ay

Sentence: Mark knew that working at Januscorp seemed a bit dubious, not knowing what face to put on when going to work. The founder, he later came to find, named the business after his wife, for whom Mark worked for. On the face of things, she seemed quite a personable character. However, once he got to know her, he could not figure out if she was a raving lunatic or moody creative type. He would often wonder if she would be a sane collaborative boss when he walked in, or the the "Pyschojeffe from Hell."

Etymology: Psycho, crazy +Jefe, Span. boss

Sybilitarian

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: sib-uhl-TAIR-ee-uhn

Sentence: Moody-go-round was an apt description of a day in the life of Roxie. Her mood slings whirled from glad, sad, mad, bad, gad, cad or faddish. She was sort of a Matahari, Mother Teresa, Catherine Medici and Phyliss Diller rolled into one mind. Futhermore, it is said that her fellow workers spoke of her managerial style as sybilitarian, with few willing to prophesize her next "mood".

Etymology: "SYBIL" a book turned into a movie(1976), tells the tale of a woman who had up to sixteen co-existing personalities & "AUTHORITARIAN."
